Tribute to Eddie M. Sotiangco
Eddie was a truly virtuous man with an unrelenting sense of consistency and integrity in all walks of life. He was a pillar of excellence with more accomplishments than is possible for one man, and more wisdom to share with the world than is possible in a single lifetime. Still, he wanted his presence to have an impact, and he spent a lifetime being the prophetic mentor to all those his influence reached, speaking from experience and leading by example.
He always preached to “Take whatever job you do seriously and do it better than everyone else. Any task is an expression of your standards and your personality, and you alone can bring dignity to your job,” and he viewed success as “The realization of a worthy goal”. In the summation of his life, he sought to uplift the image of Filipinos in the eyes of the world, and took pride in leading the pack as a role model for work ethic as well as philosophies of life.
He desired the most out of life, and pursued it fearlessly with hard work and willpower. He aspired to be number one in every endeavor… a challenge he always rose to, and wore like a badge of honor. He traveled the hardest paths to show the way forward
We will miss you Eddie. Thank you for your dedication, determination, and desire to share your infectious passion for life with everyone. Your memory lives on in the hearts and minds of all those who were lucky enough to see life’s magic through your eyes.
